Although 6 makes on this hand, thanks to East holding length in both black suits, it is a lucky contract, and I don't see how N/S would (or should) get to s anyway. 4 looks like it will be the normal contract. North has a normal 1 opening, and South will have to decide whether to call his hand a game forcing raise, or invitational. Most pairs will have to show a three card limit raise as shown in the bidding diagram, which means they are forced to the three level with a three card raise and an invitational hand. Due to this and due to the modern trend for light openings, my personal preference is to be conservative both in making a raise to the two level and in showing an invitational three card raise. This is particularly important at matchpoints, where going plus is paramount and game bonuses are less important than at IMPs. In any case, on the current hand it won't matter, as North will clearly accept any game invite. In fact, if South calls their hand a Game Force , North might push to slam. Notice that slam is not a bad prospect if South's J were in s instead.

With 4 the contract at the majority of the tables, most of the matchpoints will depend on how many tricks declarer can take. If declarer is in slam, 12 tricks would be almost impossible, as East will either lead the Ace, or the defense will cash it when in with a trump trick. However, in a 4 contract, the defense will not be quite as clear. Looking at the suit in dummy, I think the defense should realize that they need to cash out their tricks quickly, so playing the Ace when in with a trump should be easy. However, I can definitely see that some defenders will not recognize the danger of the suit and will allow declarer to make 12 tricks. +450 should be by far the most common score for N/S and anyone who goes +480 will do very well.

It's hard to see how E/W can avoid playing in 4 on this hand, unless N/S get themselves into trouble in the bidding. With a six card major suit and 11 HCP, East will open 1 at most tables. Some South pairs will double this. However, at unfavorable vulnerability and with only 9 HCP, this would be a hazardous action. Notice that if South doubles on the actual hand, North might choose to bid 1NT and if West doubles this, N/S will be lucky if they successfully scramble to 2. Furthermore, the double might slow down E/W enough that they don't get to game.

Assuming a more normal bidding sequence leading to a 4 contract by E/W, will E/W make 10 tricks? South is likely to lead a high even if West has bid the suit. The danger of dummy's s should be immediately apparent, but South won't be certain that North doesn't have a singleton . Given that East has at least as many s as North, shortness is more likely in the East hand, but this won't deter some South pairs from continuing s. If they do, they will have a chance to switch to s after the second high . For declarer to end up with 10 tricks, the defense has to fail to switch to s twice. Good defenders should get this one right, and I think -50 will be a common score for E/W. Anyone who makes game will have a clear top.

For E/W to go positive on this hand both partner's will need to take a negative view of their hand. West will have the first choice. Some players might be tempted to open 1 or 2 followed by 2 with the West hand, given the concentration of values and the five card suit. However, both of these approaches have severe drawbacks. 1 would be a significant underbid and West will never be able to later show their partner the value of their hand. 2 followed by 2 should be used to show a unbalanced hand, either only with s or with another suit. I expect most experts will just call the West hand balanced and either open 2NT or bid 2 followed by 2NT. If West starts with 2, East will have a clear Game Force and E/W will end up in either 3NT or 4. So, the only real chance for E/W looks to be if West starts with 2NT. In this case, East will have a choice to make. Some players would argue that an Ace is sufficient to bid game opposite a 2NT opening, but East has such a poor hand otherwise (no five card suit, no spot cards) that it isn't completely clear. If East does bid over 2NT, E/W will likely end up in 4.

Does either game contract have play for E/W? 4 looks hopeless, with both honors offside, and North sure to lead anything but a . A 3NT contract will depend completely on North's opening lead. For many players, a lead would look completely normal. It is true, that absent any knowledge of the bidding, that a lead would look pretty standard against 3NT. However, most experts will be aware that when the opponents have ended up in 3NT and declarer's hand is significantly stronger than their partner (2NT opening or stronger), then it is usually best to make a safe lead, rather than leading from a long suit with broken honors. The reason is that declarer will often be struggling to make their contract due to the lack of entries to dummy. This is particularly true at matchpoints, where giving up an extra trick on opening lead in an attempt to maximize your chances of beating a contract is often not worth it. At IMPs, leading a from the North hand, hoping to find partner with the King, or an outside entry is not unreasonable. But I think many expert North players would choose a high , or even a lead against 3NT at matchpoints, given the bidding. In any case, a lead will be disastrous, as declarer will happily cash out their nine top tricks and take their top score. I would expect this to be a relatively common result if 3NT were the clear contract for E/W, but with a good part of the field playing 4, I think -100 will be the most common result for E/W.

2NT is a lot more likely to be the final contract on this hand than it is on Board 3. East has a normal 2NT opening, and now West has just a Queen opposite, and will not feel like game will make. Most of the matchpoints will depend on the defense. As mentioned in the discussion for Board 3, when the opponents are in a NT contract with most of the points concentrated in one hand, it is often right to play passive defense. This is even more true when the bidding has been 2NT passed out than when it has been 2NT-3NT. When 2NT is passed out, dummy will always be broke. On the actual hand, South's opening lead won't be as important as the rest of the defense. A high will work the same as a . Essentially, the defense needs to not ever duck a and not lead s twice in order to maximize their tricks. For this reason a lead will be the worst for the defense, as South has a very good chance of later being endplayed to lead s again. Even worse, North might win the Ace and lead the Queen back which could result in declarer eventually getting three tricks. The defense will be unable to prevent a good declarer from making three tricks, two tricks and eventually a trick, as declarer should never touch the suit themselves. So the race will be for an seventh or eighth trick for declarer. I don't think the defense is as easy as it might first appear, and a lead or switch after a high are both very plausible defenses. Overall, this means that declarer will often end up with seven tricks. I expect their will be a surprisingly broad range of number of tricks taken by declarer and -100 will be about average. Certainly any N/S pair going +200 will get an excellent result, as will any E/W pair going +120.
